Aurora movie theater shooter, James Holmes, set to face death penalty, trial set for 2014

James E. Holmes deserves to die for killing twelve  people and injured 70 more in a planned attack on a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado last July.

“For James Eagan Holmes, justice is death,” the Arapahoe County district attorney, George Brauchler, stated in court hearing on Monday.

Holmes’s lawyers had presented a plea deal in which he would have pleaded guilty to the shooting in exchange for life in prison with no chance of parole. This was rejected by prosecutors.

“Mr. Holmes is currently willing to resolve the case to bring the proceedings to a speedy and definite conclusion for all involved,” Holmes’ lawyers said in their motion.

Holmes showed no visible reaction to the announcement, but his parents clasped hands and then embraced.

Photos from his cellphone showed he had staked out the rear of the theater and exit doors before the shootings. Aurora police arrested Holmes in the rear of the theater parking lot minutes after the shootings.

Victims, relatives of the deceased and friends packed a courtroom and an overflow room where proceedings could be watched by TV.

Judge Carlos Samour Jr., set a four-month trial to begin next February.
